Gemini: Trails of Thought
The Heavenly Twins represent the MUTABLE phase of energy, which symbolizes your need for change, adaptation, and transmutation. All of this happens through the MODE of air, showing your mind taking flight, and becoming a vehicle for transmitting thoughts, discovering new ideas, and dipping into knowledge. Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, is linked to daily consciousness, those things which occupy your mind incessantly, non-stop, and all of the other general mental impressions. With Gemini’s quickening intellectual powers, you possess dexterity, and you’re a master at wriggling out of a difficult situation. You are also are drawn to quick bouts of studying, but it is the concept of communication which is the true quest of your Geminian sign. The descriptions of this zodiacal region often focus on your calling in life to be a correspondent, teacher, herald, consul, interpreter, multilingual person, or writer. As a Gemini, you will, therefore, find achievement in any profession that calls for originality, springiness, candidness, and verbal skills, so you are pretty darn multifaceted/multifaced.
With boundless curiosity, you’re regarded by astrologers as seeking ‘breadth’ not ‘depth’, so your investigations lack concentration and deep perception. You are a better fit to take in enough information about a wide variety of topics, which adds to your status as a fine talker. Usually, you are not extreme in your opinions and ever ready to switch and trade your thoughts, notions, and ideas with others, or even to adapt your viewpoint to suit the crowd. Moreover, you have a need for intellectual independence and need to feel a mental rapport with others, otherwise, you meet with the distracted, restless, and unfocused twin. There is this cool ability that you have to relish in a wide-ranging variety of friends with different interests and dispositions. This has given you a name for being incredibly easy to converse with – charming, sociable, and someone who moves towards outgoingness and brightness.
With all of the air signs, there is a powerful emphasis on socializing. Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius relate to siblings, cousins, relationships, associates, the public, groups, and worldwide associates. The lessons the airy signs teach are all about brotherhood, friendliness, and union, and ultimately to evolve into working together for a larger cause, collaborative effort, and to network in groups. Gemini, as the first of the air signs, rules the immediate environment. The power of language and speech falls under this terrain, whereby ideas can be communicated to others through discussion, writing, education, and so forth.
The sign of Gemini is symbolized by the Twins, and so the theme of dualities and synchronicities are in evidence. You love the sense of variety in this contrast. Going back and forth, as a Mutable Sign, is carved deep into your nature. Monotonous and dull routine are two things you fear, and you’ll go to all kinds of extremes to avoid them. Being Changeable, though, is the most important aspect to comprehend when really trying to understand your personality. You value freedom and the ability to travel mentally, spiritually, or physically. It’s pointless for anyone to try to pin you down, and box you into a corner. As a Gemini, your spirit is in travel, not in moving homeward bound. And you love to walk around any new territory, just to observe the way people converse. With your own inquisitive and creative ideas, you’re open to a completely different way of looking at things.
You are up-to-the-minute, up-to-date, and your daily life will often have you constantly living off new crazes. You like to be the first in-the-know. You want to acquire, sample, and learn all about everything as quickly as possible. You’re interested in the whole shebang. So, you find it hard to envision that someone is indifferent to all of the fascinating things of the world. Through your highly developed intellectual ability, you have the gift of seeing all sides of a problem. Furthermore, as a Gemini, you feel strongly about being confined to narrow patterns of thought. This inner elasticity of all the mutable signs must be able to have movement to continue to grow and gain further knowledge. Even when you have decided on a course of action, it is most likely that you’ll change direction on the offshoot of the minute. In a jiffy, you have turned around and are following new trails of thought, like breadcrumbs, towards a different direction.
